Janette Reber is a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist, who has been serving families in private practice in Boston and Cape Cod for nearly ten years.
BiographyJanette feels fortunate to have been profoundly changed by the people she has encountered over her years as a practitioner. Working with families across various age groups, she has seen, firsthand, the incredible self-transcending and self-transforming nature of the human spirit. In her experience, consciously facing health challenges creates an opportunity to pivot back towards greater happiness and compassion, enriching our lives in immeasurable ways.
She has experience working with people managing chronic pain and disease, working to achieve personal and fitness goals, overcome physical strain and injury, coping with the stress and recover after the loss of loved ones. She also works with individuals who are looking to invest in wellness and seek psycho-spiritual balance.
Janette’s interest in medicine began at an early age with a great curiosity about the body, the nature of being, and an innate calling to help others. Her spiritual nature flourished through her love of music, nature, meditation, yoga, and surfing. She credits these pursuits with keeping her grounded.
As a massage therapist and bodyworker, Janette’s style is an amalgam of various techniques tailored to individual needs, with the goal of restoring postural alignment and function. She received her education from The Mountain Heart School of Bodywork in beautiful Crested Butte, Colorado. There, under the guidance of Craig McLaughlin, she specialized in Therapeutic Neuromuscular Technique and Somatic Mind-body Release.
Janette traveled to India for a year to study yoga, Vipassana meditation, and Ayurvedic medicine. During her time there, she volunteered at the Shakyamuni Buddhist Hospital run by the Root Institute of Bodhgaya, India. Alongside allopathic physicians, naturopaths, and biologists, she worked in the physiotherapy unit with children suffering from extrapulmonary tuberculosis, polio, and cerebral palsy. One day a week, she would accompany a mobile care unit into the struggling rural villages of Bihar.
Janette went on to receive her Masters degree from the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) in lovely Newton, Massachusetts. At NESA, her education was grounded in both western and eastern medicine. She specialized in Chinese and Japanese Styles of Acupuncture, as well as non-insertive techniques.
